utterance to the following:
I'd say there is a difference between the local level ("Canterbury
Regional Council", "Indian electoral districts", "Orange County
Board") and the sub-national state level ("England", "States of
"California"). These difference is especially visible in the
significance to the rest of the world.
Well even the smaller states of India are more populous than most US
Excuse my ignorance of the US electoral system, but are there gubnertorial
contests happening in some or all of the other states at the same time? If
there are, then why should California be singled out, other than for the
reason that California tends to be self aggrandizing? And the reason for
that might be that it is home to the third-largest film and TV industry in
the world and the accompanying media circus?
I'm not lost - I'm directionally challenged
